Just because Kobe Bryant is injured and not playing, doesn’t mean he won’t find a way to give his opinion on his team’s play during the playoffs. Bryant was unable to travel with the Lakers after undergoing surgery on his left Achilles tendon, so he watched the team’s first-round playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs from the comfort of his own couch. And like many couch-band fans, Kobe took to Twitter to offer his opinion and analysis of his team’s play. Limited to just 140 character per thought, Bryant offered a running commentary of the Lakers’ loss, even interacting with fans throughout the game. The Lakers fell to the Spurs 79-91, and it seems that Coach Mamba felt for his teammates. Check out Bryant’s analysis in the tweets below. I like how Nash is moving so far. Both teams a lil out of rhythm to start— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 Gotta get to the block. See wat spurs r gonna do with pau and d12— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 Post. Post. Post.— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 Gotta milk pau in the post right now and d12. Will get good looks from it— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 @nbarocksstc I agree. Lethargic start for us. Gotta minimize little mistakes like giving up the middle drive on close outs— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 Nothing worse then watching your bothers struggle and u can't do crap about it #realtalk— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 When Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni was asked after the game whether or not he thought Bryant’s tweets were appropriate, D’Antoni replied with, “He’s a fan. He’s a fan right now.” Bryant replied to those comments by saying that he will be watching game two from the same spot while wearing a Pau Gasol jersey and Laker face paint. Tweet on, Black Mamba, tweet on.
